Re: “The Mayor of New Orleans Explains Why North Carolina’s Monuments to White Supremacy Need to Come Down

In front of the Pitt County, Greenville, NC courthouse is a monument that honored/celebrated the county's dead soldiers by segregating their names with the word ""colored."". That word was removed along with a Confederate flag that flew over the town commons in the early 80s. Some call these actions a sanitizing of history. We should never forget our government's relationship with violence, hypocrisy and ignorance towards its own citizens.

Re: “Charles Murray's Duke Appearance Avoids the Blacks-Are-Inferior Thing, Talks About “Cognitive Elites” and the White Working Class

No need to silence Mr. Murray as his ilk create their own form of a gag reflex and noise cancelling speech.His brand of endangered species warrants protection since being curious about him and others like him ensures he survives as a reminder of hate and why it exists.

Re: “Reversing Self, The Civitas Institute Says North Carolina Does Not Need Nonpartisan Redistricting

I would asked that my future representatives show no interest in partisan politics and actually no longer have a majority nor minority in the General Assembly. Any ties that happen in the voting process would be settled by a revote, once then twice. Should a tie remain, the bill is then tabled until next year. My coldest regards for politicians that put their party over the people.

Re: “SCOTUS Grants Emergency Stay For 2017 Special Elections

Forget voter fraud as the problem; what is the point of voting at all with judges and legislators in the way of fair, equitable districts?

Re: “Sneak Attack: Inside the Legislature’s Surprise Assault on Democracy

From these headlines, I understand that being elected is no longer its own reward. It has mostly been to punish the losing party and create court cases, all at taxpayer expense. This behavior gets repeated every four years or so because winners hope to hear whiners cry a loser's lament. Voters are left with the childish ideas of politicians whose actions are more to seem than to be.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Trump’s Making Stuff Up Again, Must Be a Day That Ends in Y

crazy is as crazy does. To expect a government without controversy is like having a ball of string with no tangles. If my pet cat gets involved with the string, it will never get untangled.
